Park Hill Neighborhood.
On April 7, 1887, Baron Alios von Winckler platted Park Hill into a 32-acre tract bordered by what today is Colorado Boulevard, Dahlia Street, Montview Boulevard and 26th Ave. Park Hill was soon the home of an Arabian Horse Race Track and Denver's first dog pound. When the Spanish-American War began in 1898, Baron von Winckler offered some of his land north of 26th Avenue and east of Colorado Boulevard as a camp for the Colorado National Guard.

In 1900, seven homes were offered for sale along Montview Boulevard at a cost of $5,000 each. No water, no sewage, no lights and no trees, just wind-swept prairie land which soon grew to a population of 2,500. Park Hill became an international community and included families from England, Denmark, Germany, Holland and Italy as well as African-Americans. After World War II Denver experienced a housing shortage and many 1,000 sq./ft. homes began sprouting up in old dairies and airfields of northern Park Hill. Today Park Hill consists of approximately 510 blocks. Park Hill today is known as a well-built, stylistically distinguished historical neighborhood.

The Greater Park Hill Community (GPHC), formed in 1961, is a volunteer-based registered neighborhood organization that promotes the character and vibrancy of Park Hill; provides resources, information and advocacy; and preserves quality of life and history of the neighborhood through community participation.

Three miles from the Central Business District and primarily residential, Denver's Park Hill neighborhood begins just east of the Denver Museum of Nature and Science on Colorado Boulevard to Quebec Street and from Colfax Avenue to as far north as 52nd Avenue. Montview Boulevard and Monaco Parkway are main thoroughfares and typify the wide, tree-lined neighborhood streets. Park Hill's nationally recognized neighborhood organization sponsors an annual tour of the many historic homes in this welcoming community. Park Hill is home to many beautiful turn of the century mansions, brick bungalows and Tudors, and Mediterranean style homes.
